While we were watching Steph chase down her 2017 #ROXYpro Gold Coast victory, hundreds of girls rolled out their mats on Rainbow Bay beach for the #ROXYfitness event.

Rain, Hail or Shine at #ROXYfitness Gold Coast

Despite the low pressure system bringing the rain, spirits were high as we kicked off the 7am start with yoga on the beach.

The view of pumping waves rolling past as we saluted the sun (hidden behind a few clouds) brought a great energy to the yoga session as did the partner yoga which also gave us a few laughs as we stretched with a buddy.

The fun continued with a 5km run, tracing the coastline from Rainbow Bay to Kirra and then back again.

We think the excitement of finals day at the #ROXYpro managed to pull everyone over the line quicker than ever before, with the winner of the run leg, completing the race in 20:22!

After a quick snack we headed to Jack Evans Boat harbour for the 1km SUP race.

While we managed to dry off during the run, it didn’t take long for the heavens to open one again, and deliver another almighty tropical downpour as we were paddling our way around the Tweed River.

To all the incredible women who came and celebrated along with us at #ROXYfitness Gold Coast, we thank you for your incredible smiles and indomitable spirit, refusing to let the rain hold you back from celebrating an active outdoor lifestyle! We hope to see you all again next year

This time next week, we’ll be back in championship tour mode, patiently waiting for the World Surf League dawn patrol to call on the first heats of the #ROXYpro Gold Coast 2017.

Until then, we scrolled back through the gram and found a few of our favorite posts to give you an idea of the fun that is about to unfold...

Get set to tune in to all the action during the #ROXYpro by following us on Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and Facebook

From our saltiest groms to our World champs, we love sharing the stoke on a daily basis, but on June 20th we are joining our athletes and the surf community to celebrate International Surfing Day by heading to our favorite beach to surf, participate in beach clean up or soak up the weather with friends.

And to sweeten the deal, ROXY and Quiksilver are donating $10 from every boardshort and swim piece sold today to the Hawaiian Lifeguards. Because good karma swells and the ocean belongs to everyone.

Surfrider Foundation is hosting over 200 #ISD2016 events across the globe to enable every person to give back to their local beach or favorite surf break. Stay up to date throughout the day by following #ISD2016 on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for all the fun!

To kick things off we asked our team to tell us what surfing means to them -

Surfing to me is this… Waikiki. To me Waikiki means family, it means joy and it means memories. There’s a feeling you get there that you can’t get anywhere else. There’s a feeling that I get when I surf a wave here, it makes me fall in love with this wave riding thing over and over and over again.

It was all about the girls today on the Gold Coast with our first global #ROXYfitness event of the year, and the first rounds of the #ROXYpro kicking off at Snapper Rocks.

ROXYfitness Gold Coast

A thousand girls took to their yoga mats alongside ROXY team riders Kelia, Monyca, Bruna, Justine, Mainei, Alyssa, Caroline, Nao and Sophia as Stephanie Gilmore was paddling out for her first heat in the 2016 Women’s Championship tour.

We couldn’t think of a better coach for the team riders preparing for the #ROXYpro trials and a new year on the competition circuit, than 4x World Champion, Lisa Andersen. From technique to tactics and everything in between, Lisa gave Alyssa, Caroline, Nao, Mainei and Sierra a few secrets to her success that might give them the winning edge in the line-up.

#ROXYpro Trials Training with Lisa Andersen

First on the agenda, a morning surf at Snapper.

As hundreds of grommets have made their way to the Gold Coast we thought what better time to send our work experience gal Stevie Alger off to have a chat with some of the juniors competing over the next few days. First up is one of the early round winners of the Occy Grom Comp.

 

Alyssa Lock, a name you will want to remember. She is the young 13 year old Roxy athlete from Banora in NSW who is making her way through the surfing world on her way up to becoming an elite surfer. Alyssa has already made history as she was the youngest surfer to compete in a professional event when she competed in the Roxy Pro at Snapper Rocks earlier this year. Earlier this week I talked with Alyssa Lock and asked her how does she live the normal life of a 13 year old when she is making history in surfing.

 

How does a 13-year-old manage surfing and schooling?

I actually love school but I try to find a good balance so that my surfing doesn’t suffer. I dedicate a few mornings a week to training and most afternoons I will go out for a fun surf. At night after dinner is when I settle down and do my homework. I am lucky because my teachers and my school are very supportive of my surfing and I do my best to repay them by giving everything I can when I'm there.

 

Tell us about competiting in the Roxy Pro Trials this year?

Being the youngest girl ever to be in the Roxy Pro Trials was incredible. It was exciting and I will never forget the nerves coming up to the event. It will be a life time memory I will never ever forget and I am so grateful to have been given that opportunity.

 

What motivates you to succeed?

My family and my really close friends motivate me more than anything. Knowing that they believe in me and try to do everything they can to help me succeed motivates me to do well, to make them proud of me. And knowing that they will support me no matter what the outcome, gives me confidence to never give up.

 

You're sponsored by Roxy, do the older girls on the team inspire you to get where they are?

I take so much inspiration from the Roxy Team. Being a Roxy girl is not only about being a surfer but it’s also a lifestyle. I envy them when I see their instagram photos off on another exotic tropical location always smiling, in bikinis, relaxing with the girls surrounded by the bluest waters. One day I hope to be in one of those shots and my smile will be massive!

 

On top of your surfing what other kinds of training do you do to keep fit?

I joined a Surf Club last year because they provided a great training program for all their members. For me it was an opportunity to mix up what I do, to socialise with a different group other than just my surfing friends and secretly just another excuse to be in the water when there aren’t waves. I love it.

 

Do you like to encourage other girls to surf?

I do. It’s really great to see your friends carry a board for the first time down to the water and the laughs we have when they are trying to stand up. I also love hearing from other girls who I don’t know but just couldn’t resist giving it a go.  If I can I try to answer their messages on instagram and when I have time I check their photos to see how they are going. The best though is watching little tiny girls being pushed onto little shories and seeing them stand up and claim every wave. 

 

A pre heat routine can also include waiting. It takes awhile to get through 320 grommets!


What's your pre heat routine before a heat?

It starts two hours before my heat and it’s a routine I stick to. The last hour goes so fast. This is when I like to be left alone and focus on the surf conditions and start to put together my strategies in the water. When it’s time to get the rashie, I’m there the moment the previous heat is over, I grab it and head straight down to the water so I can have the last few moments alone.

 

When the nerves kick in what keeps you focused and relaxed?

I actually surf my best when I'm not relaxed. When I'm nervous or anxious I find I'm switched on and more in tune with all my surroundings, so for me nerves are a good sign because that is when I surf my best.

 

A lot of people are seeing you achieve so much and finding inspiration from you, how does  this make you feel knowing that you are inspiring so many people?

It’s a great feeling to have someone tell you that you inspire them or you're their idol. I do stop and think to myself… “me? really?!” I still look up to all the girls on the tour and I still say one day I want to be just like them! It’s pretty cool to have someone think the same about me and I hope I can continue to be their inspiration.

 

What's the best part about surfing with friends?

The random conversations we have while waiting for the next wave that only we understand. Most of my surfing friends have been competing as long as I have so we've shared a lot of fun times and have many memories.  We know each others’ habits in the water and even little face gestures we do that only we know the meaning of. Sometimes we can all be sitting there and start laughing hard about something without hardly saying much to each other and people around us just stare and probably think 'have I missed something here?'.

 

Shortly after watching Occy, maybe?


Do you prefer surfing with guys or girls?

I have to say surfing with guys has its advantages. Watching them surf pushes me harder because I do my best to hold my own so I take more risks and try to do what they are doing. 

 

How is it dealing with your normal life and interviews and photo-shoots?

I try not to tell anyone about that side of things. I don’t want them to think I’m up myself so I just keep it simple – they just think I surf, and that’s okay with me.

Not many people can say that they have achieved so much at such a young age but Alyssa is only 13 and already has made her mark in history. Not only is she a champion surfer but she has the most contagious smile and the most down to earth attitude towards her surfing and life. Already a Roxy Athlete, no doubt we will be seeing a lot more from Alyssa in the future.
